    I was searching marketplace and ran across a 2013 passion. My wife has been wanting one of these cars since forever!!!! So the guys said it only needed a alternator and crankshaft sensor and a front fender. Now I’ve worked on cars for many years. But I’ve never worked on a smart. I know they are...

    Just picked up a used 2012 Pure and I have some general questions regarding the Audio System. First, inside the glove compartment there is only an Aux port, no USB, yet USB appears on the Media System. I plan to upgrade the Radio but I would still like to play through the Aux for now...

    Hi folks, This morning my cars 12v battery died overnight, this is the second time this has happened, this time last year was the first. The dealer scratched their heads back then after having it in the shop for 1 month. So this time I knew to just attach a battery booster to get it started...

    Hi, all. I am the proud owner of a 2011 fortwo. I've always listened to music in the car with a flash drive plugged into the USB port in the glove compartment. I had the same experience others have had connecting an iPod and iPhone. Is there any upgrade I could make to the radio, app I could...

    Hey there! New user to the forums (and new Smart owner!), I wanted to try and compile some stuff in a post because I found it was difficult to find information for my specific vehicle and ask a question. However, since I purchased the vehicle used and either there's little information on this...

    Hey there friends! I hope everyone's having a wonderful weekend. I'm planning on replacing the stock stereo head unit with something a little more flashy, since mine came with the most basic of basic stereos available to mankind. I remember at one point stumbling upon a post somewhere...

    Hi, I connect my iphone (6s) with the Cross Connect app via bluetooth. The problem which I am facing is that whenever the Cross Connect app is running and the phone is 'unlocked' the volume of the radio is slightly lowered. When the phone locks (automatically after 1') the volume of the radio...

    I have a radio I pulled out of my Smart before I sold it. It's the higher end radio with a 6 CD changer built in. It's a Visteon radio. It was working perfectly before I pulled it out and has been sitting for about a year unused. The body/face is in great condition, except for the volume knob...

    Hey all, I finally got around to buying a carplay capable radio -- after being convinced that nobody will ever make an aftermarket, wireless carplay capable system. What that means is that the highline radio from my original system (touch screen, GPS, cd/dvd/ipod/bluetooth/etc) is available...

    Has anyone had the antenna booster go out on their smart? This would be the power module that is behind the front left quarter panel. I ask because my reception went to hell about 3 months ago, around the same time my fuel pump went out actually. I know the Smart never had great reception in...

    Hey guys! Do you think you can help? I recently bought my first ever customized addition for my darling 2008 Cabrio, "Miles". Unfortunately, no dash installation kit included with said radio due to sizing worries. This is the radio in question...

    Hello Smart folks! I am a Smart/Benz tech at Euro Motorcars in Germantown, MD. I leased a 2012 Pure, and just recently turned in the lease. During my years with my smart, I was able to upgrade the car with some nice items... I get really good deals because of where I work! Everything is OEM...

    Hello, this is my first time here. My father and I have been trying to hook up a Bazooka basstube with their FAST adapter, unfortunately I don't have the harness wiring color schemes (pinouts) to know what is what on a 2013 Electric Drive Smart. All the examples I have found on the forums look...

    Hello there, Just bought a 2008 ForTwo -it had a flat battery so I replaced it and started the car for the first time. When I take the key out there is a static/popping sound coming from the speakers even though the radio is not on. When I put the key in and switch the radio on the popping...

    Really all I want is a double-din stereo with USB and AUX (have AUX currently but I hate it being in the glove box). Any suggestions on what one to get? I was searching here for something cheap but I have no idea whats compatible with my smart. Evilution.co.uk makes it look as easy as moving one...

    Been looking at the threads for some time; had my 2009 Cabrio Baby about a year. I've been unhappy with my 10 radio but have a lifetime membership to Sirius XM. Still, saw a stock 2012 Smart navigation radio on eBay so bid and won it - got a good deal. Then found out it will probably cost more...

    Hey folks, new to the form and have had my wonderful Smart for just over two years with no issues. So my question is I got in the car today and we have had a few really hot days here in the Atlanta area but this has never happened in the past years. The radio display will flash from the current...
